Area code 213 was one of three original area codes assigned to California. Where is area code 213? It covers nearly the entire city of Los Angeles outside of the San Fernando Valley, including Hollywood, plus several smaller cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County immediately to the south and east.
Its principal city is Los Angeles, with a population of 3,898,747. This area code touches just one county — Los Angeles County, CA.
With millions flocking to its sunny west coast shores and glamorous Hollywood bungalows over the 20th century, area code 213 lost territory many times to new area codes. But for now, area code 213 has been restored to the entire downtown area (it overlays area code 323). More population growth in downtown Los Angeles likely means more overlays in the future, with area code 213 maintaining its current footprint.
With a boom of L.A. residents over the years and the demand for new cell phones and devices, many more area codes have sprouted in the area. Some nearby area codes are 310 and 424 (Los Angeles, CA), 442 and 760 (Oceanside, CA), 626 (Pasadena, CA), 657 and 714 (Anaheim, CA), and 747 and 818 (Los Angeles, CA).
With a local 213 phone number, you can effectively get in front of the right people and establish a foothold in the Los Angeles, CA area.
With a nickname like Tinseltown, it’s no wonder many people both in and outside of L.A. think the city’s economy relies on just one thing: Hollywood. While filmmaking (and music, entertainment, and creative arts in general) have lots of support here, the reality is more nuanced and much bigger than the studios that built early Los Angeles. While some estimate the creative industries that fuel our imaginations constitute almost 20% of L.A.’s employment, that leaves a massive chunk for other endeavors, from finance to agriculture, aerospace, and energy.
